What I've been working on for my weekly challenge.

I've had lots of ideas forming and taking shape over these last few days. My first step was to research the 1970's as this is what the pattern made me think of first.

My search led me to these...

Space hoppers, roller bladed and the Wombles. The 70's seemed to be about sunshine and having fun outside then coming inside with your 1p pick and mix's and watching the Wombles. I have to say I was really drawn to the roller skates. They just held this amazing rose-tinted dream. I was sold. So taking my 1970s print and my inspirational picture of a pair of roller skates I set to work designing my illustration and planning my idea.
